WOMEN’S SOCCER PREVIEW: Martlets aiming for championship

Sports teams are notoriously tight lipped and cautious when making preseason predictions about success. Such is the case with the Martlets soccer team. While they didn't engage in any interviews touting dominance over the rest of the field, the Martlets soccer team clearly has only one target for the season: a national championship.

UPON FURTHER REVIEW: Is Terrell Owens a valuable asset?

There can really be no doubt about Terrell Owens' dominance, because while other players may put up bigger numbers, no other receiver is tougher to defend. Get the ball anywhere near Owens and he will make a play. I doubt anyone can honestly question Owens' value on the field after he has racked up over 1,000 yards a year six times and over 100 career touchdowns.

SOCCER PREVIEW: Reinventing the Redmen

Sports are a transcendent element in today's turbulent society. To use a cliché, any team can win on any given day. It is not always the supremely skilled squads that capture championships; rather, spirited, passionate and hard-working often trump the talented.

FOOTBALL PREVIEW: Redmen ready to rebound

Coming off what can only be described as the worst year in the football program's history, there's really nowhere for the Redmen to go but up. On the field the team finished a dismal 1-7, but that was only the tip of the iceberg. Instead it was the black eye the franchise suffered as a result of the team's hazing scandal which will be remembered as the legacy of the '05 edition of Redmen Football.

THIRD MAN IN: Two Longs don’t make a right

Does anyone else hear that laughing? It's coming from the south, somewhere below the 49th parallel. That sound is our American counterparts buckling over at our blind devotion to this pastime of ours-one which, yet again, has embarrassed us for taking it seriously.

THIRD MAN IN: No style points for soccer

Soccer, football, the beautiful game; whatever you want to call it, it's a sport suffering from a debilitating illness. One symptom of this illness is players flying through the air whenever they are so much as grazed by an opposing player in a pathetic, yet all too often fruitful, attempt to draw the referee's attention.

FROM THE CHEAP SEATS: Canada, Tom sucks!

I guess I'm unpatriotic. Though, born and raised in Canada-and a lifelong fan of the gridiron game-I have never made a secret of my disdain for this country's knock-off brand of football or its ramshackle convening body, the Canadian Football League. What mystifies me most about the CFL isn't its poor management, weak talent pool, inferiority complex or laughable quality of play.

Atlantic

Boston Celtics: The reigning champs lost a lot of their toughness when they let go of SF James Posey, but the Celtics are still the favourites to win the East. Their rookies, C Semih Erden and guards Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens, have seen little action this preseason and figure to play minor roles, if any, this year.
